In recent seasons, recording a triple double seems almost normal and, sometimes, it is taken for granted: ask Westbrook for further information.
However, such a performance never cease to amaze us. Let’s check who is the leader and the All-Time ranking for Triple Doubles in NBA Playoff history.
NBA Playoff Triple Doubles Record
The record belongs to Magic Johnson, with 30 Triple Doubles.
The greatest point guard of all time created a show on the floor (his Lakers are remembered as Lakeshow not by chance) and he was able to win 5 championships with the purple-and-yellow franchise.
The “no-look” father achieved this success also thanks to the 30 Triple Doubles scored during the Playoff, a more unique event at that time.
Among active players, the record belongs to LeBron James with 28 Triple Doubles.
If things go as they should, there is no doubt that LBJ can beat this record too.
